Font for nursery / day care center website
0

Hi,

I am looking for some suggestions. I need a font for a nursery / day care center, for children.

The characteristics I am after are trustworthiness, cheerfulness, playfulness, warm reception.

The style of the website will follow the above directions and probably will use illustrations and decorations.

Thanks in advance!

The black cut would kick teletubby butts…

But seriously, I think DIN Round is one of the most friendly, warm and cheerful looking typefaces out there (especially in the bolder weights), while still keeping trustworthy.
And it’s not overused like, say, Gotham rounded.

Dunno, I'd find DIN much too stiff and mechanical, even when it's rounded...

You might like something in the direction of Sauna, or maybe Bree?

Edit: Wait, I just saw you specified this is for a website. Are you looking for a webfont to use for text, or just something for headings?

Edit 2 (Sorry, I'll stop now): FF Tisa might be great for both.

In my opinion really good suggestions so far, especially Din rounded.
I like to add Omnes http://www.dardenstudio.com/galley/?family=Omnes%20Pro
